Success: Our whole-house humidifier works like a dream!
Failure: We remembered YESTERDAY to turn it on. After living in a nightmare of electric shocks and crazy static electricity hair (literally, I was smoothing a dryer sheet over my hair multiple times a day) and uber-dry skin, we thought to turn it on. Geniuses.
Success: Turning on Michael Jackson music makes playroom cleanup go so much faster for the boys. Must do this every time.
Failure: We just got rid of a bunch of toys; why oh why are there still so many of them??
Success: Accomplished a few things on the to-do list.
Failure: There are so many left on that list. Why haven’t I learned yet that I can’t accomplish much when I have a 3-year-old helper all day, and a 5-year-old helper for all but 3.5 hours of the day?
Success: I got up without hesitation on my first day of early-morning Bible reading!
Failure: none to go with this one.
Success: My children are watching the Illini/MSU basketball game, and cheering their little orange and blue hearts out. Which just melts mine.
Failure: Out-of-state tuition is going to break the bank for them or for us. Who wants our kids to live with them when they turn 18?
Success: Bennett is growing like a weed.
Failure: Dear Old Navy, could you please PLEASE have a sale on jeans soon? They’re the best fit for him, and on sale, they’re a great deal. In the meantime, we are getting by on hole-in-the-knee and almost-hole-in-the-knee hand-me-downs from Luke. Who literally just outgrew that size himself.
